Porter Novelli

Porter Novelli has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2016.

Viewing ongoing professional development as an integral part of maintaining a competitive edge, Porter Novelli assist staff in the pursuit of external higher education by offering financial and time support. This is complimented by internal learning initiatives, which all staff participate in and contribute to. The team conduct performance reviews regularly, recognising success through rewards initiatives such as travel vouchers, lifestyle gifts and time away from work.

Health and safety is also a priority for the Porter Novelli team, adopting a “no injuries” objective aimed at creating and maintaining a workplace that takes all possible steps to minimise injury risk to employees.
